Donald Trump has launched his strongest attack yet on his “very weak” Attorney General Jeff Sessions, fuelling speculation he is preparing to fire him.
The US President took issue with Mr Sessions apparent reluctance to investigate presidential rival Hillary Clinton’s alleged “crimes”.
His early morning tweet followed a similar barb on Monday when he branded Mr Sessions “beleaguered”.
Mr Trump’s anger at Mr Sessions stems from the Attorney General’s decision to recuse himself from all matters related to the investigation into alleged links between Russia and the Trump campaign.
The fate of Mr Sessions, the country’s top law enforcement official, has been uncertain since Mr Trump claimed in a recent interview that he had been “unfair” to him by recusing himself from the ongoing probe into last November’s election.
Reports of Mr Sessions’ imminent departure from the Trump administration emerged early on Tuesday when three sources told Associated Press the President was considering new options for the justice role.
